This past Thursday DC’s 9:30 Club would turn into a melting pot of hipsters and young professionals as everyone came to check out Detroit nativeJMSN. Currently in the early stages of his second headlining tour, Christian has never been shy about the sometimes shaky road he’s traveled throughout his life. His latest album It Is catches fans up to speed about the latest obstacles he’s faced while doubling as a motivational album reeking with constant words of encouragement. Simply titled: The Tour, the concert would also take an identical approach to it’s aesthetic making the music the main focus.
LA artistTiffany Gouché would set the mood with tracks off of her latest EP Pillow Talk. The songstress performed melodic tunes like Red Rum Therapy which serves as a vibey tell-all track about a wild night shared between her and a companion thanks to combination of emotions and liquor. Draped in a fur coat, JMSN would later mesmerize the crowd as he covered tracks from his 3 studio albums even reaching back to bless fans with a track off of the one that started it all, Priscilla. With Napoleon Dynamite-style dance moves that seemed to come whenever he got lost in the music, the 29 year old displayed great stage presence throughout the whole set. At times it seemed as if he was stricken with the holy ghost the way he glided across the stage interacting with all of his 6 piece band. A rather short set, he made up for it by giving the fans a encore when he returned to the stage to perform Blue Album standout track ‘Bout It.
JMSN displayed what true musicianship was for the people who were lucky enough to attend the show. From the tambourine to the guitar he toggled between the two with ease throughout the night not to mention still managed to sound amazing when it came time to hit the high notes in Cruel Intentions. Christian was so appreciative of the love in room that he even stayed afterwards for a free meet and greet by his merchandise booth. It’s not often that you come across such a unique artist with an humble attitude and appreciative for the growing number of fans they have. The tour is still in full swing champs so make sure to check the dates below and see when JMSN will hit your town for an unforgettable experience.
